Trying to transfer to ARC in Sacramento now, at least they have a biotech program & affordable rent.
I'm half Canadian but it's a long wait for citizenship papers.
PAST: I grew up in the woods with cats, horses, chickens, skunks, raccoons, ducks, etc.
I was a tattooist most of my life after abandoning comics.
Worked/lived in 40 countries so far.
I have a box of trophies at home, published worldwide, worked at over 200 tattoo conventions & shops, wrote articles/interviews, went on tour w/Ozzfest & met lots of rockstar dipshits, stayed in Houdini's mansion, Yokosuka Navy Base, Hells Angels clubhouses.
After about a million faces, I can't deal w/most people anymore. Being a tattooist equals being a therapist & listening to stupid peoples' life stories.
Ironically, comics turned out to be the more successful & permanent artform, now I want to get back into it.
I'm highly bewildered by people the last few years. Everyone's lost their shit, staring at StupidPhones with earplugs jammed in, talking about nothing on FB. Do you have a tiny inbred mini-dog? You should be ashamed, this country is a disgrace.
I'm currently debating whether to get a phone, or just forget about human interaction.
